Each statement can now be assessed . Once this has been completed we now recommend that you make a judgement about whether a child is 'on track' to achieve national expectations or 'not on track yet'. Remember that for Yr2 and Yr6 all the performance descriptors need to be achieved as well as the ones that precede the standard you assess the child at.
Some evidence but very limited
With adult support (guided, scaffolded, innovated)

Evidence of effective independent application close to the point of teaching (Invent)
